Magnets and the Art of Energy Healing

Updated: Apr 23, 2019

Magnets have been used as a healing tool dating back over 2,000 years to China, documented in the “Yellow Emperor’s Book of Internal Medicine.” In the modern era, magnetic healing practices can be traced back to the late 1800’s, when Dr. Albert Abrams began developing various devices that could detect diseased tissue in the human body and heal the underlying imbalances. Similarly, Austrian physician Franz Anton Mesmer developed a theory relating to the body’s own magnetic energy and, more recently, researchers and neurologists at Vanderbilt Medical University have investigated the use of static magnets to treat pain.

For Dr. Bradley Nelson, an expert in the field of holistic healing and natural therapy, magnets played a leading role in his pivotal journey with non-traditional healing methods. Though his experience with magnets has undoubtedly helped him find success in his energy healing practice, it’s important to first understand what and how magnets actually work.

How Do Magnets Work?

While the origins of magnetic therapy reach back over 2,000 years, researchers today continue to explore and debate the use of magnets as a healing tool. However, doctors and researchers across the field do share several largely accepted views, including the idea that magnets increase blood flow, improve flexibility and increase muscle strength, as well as helping the body’s muscles and soft tissues to relax and lengthen, facilitating recovery and healing, while reducing muscle swelling and pain, in addition to reducing the levels of calcium, cholesterol, and lactic acid deposits in the blood. Similarly, evidence shows that magnetic fields can also act as a pain-blocking mechanism in nerve fibers.

Dr. Nelson’s Story

With a baseline understanding of how magnets can positively impact and help heal the body, it’s time to explore Dr. Nelson’s story and how magnets played a role in his path toward natural healing.

When Dr. Nelson was just 13 years old, doctors diagnosed him with a potentially fatal type of kidney disease. The illness, which caused him knife-stabbing pain, was deemed untreatable by traditional medical professionals. Instead of succumbing to the diagnosis, however, Dr. Nelson’s parents took him to a rural osteopathic practice, where Drs. Alan Bain and Ida Harmon started treating him regularly with holistic and non-invasive practices. Within a few weeks, Dr. Nelson was pain-free.

Dr. Nelson’s parents took him back to the traditional clinic, where doctors ran tests once again to determine the severity of his disease. After all the tests came back negative, they were told it was a “spontaneous remission,” and Dr. Nelson became a firm believer in holistic healing and made the decision to pursue a career in the healing field.

Despite temporarily following his passion for computer programming, Dr. Nelson ultimately did achieve his goal of becoming an expert in holistic health. After graduating from chiropractic school, Dr. Nelson spent more than 20 years using alternative practices to successfully help patients with a slew of various illnesses like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, cancer, depression, heartache, and much more. By identifying and eliminating imbalances within the body, Dr. Nelson was able to achieve a very high success rate in helping his patients to recover from their illnesses, many of whom had been told that their situation was hopeless.

Dr. Nelson left his practice in 2004 to write his book “The Emotion Code,” a guide that has helped readers across the world learn the basics of energy healing. As his way of serving others, his book teaches in plain simplicity the healing methods he used to help hundreds of patients in the US and Canada overcome physical and emotional symptoms. As the foundation for his book, Dr. Nelson describes in great detail how magnets can and should be used in The Emotion Code to achieve maximum energy healing benefits.

Magnets Play a Role in Energy Healing

One of the most important aspects of The Emotion Code and energy healing is to understand that Trapped Emotions are identified and released individually, not in groups or bundles. And whether you recognize it or not, each of these Trapped Emotions affects the energy within your life, creating challenges, problems, and physical and emotional pain. In order to release these Trapped Emotions, Dr. Nelson recommends first asking for help from above with a short, sincere prayer or moment of silence. Note, too, that you don’t have to ascribe to a particular religion for energy healing to be successful; being spiritual, however, is essential because, according to Dr. Nelson, “the highest duty of the healer is to be a go-between for the higher power.”

By asking for help from that greater power, you’ll be able to better identify and release emotional energies that have become trapped in the body. In his personal practice, after recognizing God and asking for help, Dr. Nelson uses muscle testing to identify the trapped emotion using the Chart of Emotions. He follows that by asking if other barriers need to be identified before releasing the emotion. If the body responds “yes,” more details are required about what, when, and why these emotions were trapped. However, if the body responds “no,” then it’s time to implement the power of magnetic healing.

The magnet can be a valuable tool when releasing Trapped Emotions. When a Trapped Emotion has been identified and is ready to be released, passing a magnet over the Governing Meridian three times infuses magnetic energy and the healing intention of the practitioner into the entire body, releasing and transforming the emotional energy and rendering it harmless. If a trapped emotion happens to have been inherited from a parent, Dr. Nelson recommends passing the magnet 10 times over the governing meridian, being vigilant about checking to confirm that the negative energy is gone afterwards. Using a magnet in this valuable practice has helped Dr. Nelson achieve unparalleled results and has played a monumentally impactful role in successful energy healing methods.
